Well, the sets over here are just bigger and there are more people working around. That’s simply because everything here has more funding. In Israel everything is smaller, and that allows people to become friends on sets in Israel. I miss that.
I always had a plan, and in that plan I know I was going to leave for the states right after the army. I didn’t plan on getting a show in Israel but when I did I was happy and so it took a little longer before I moved away to try and make my dreams come true.
I really should think about the question more for my interviews, because it comes up. I’m kind of a greedy individual. I want not one dream role but a few, because there are so many different types of women in our world and in our society that I potentially want to play. Each role is fun and each role is different. I want to play the girl working in the office as a lawyer, and I want to play the mom, and I want to play the hooker. I’m greedy. What can I say?
There’s always that dream of going to the epicenter of where things happen. [Los Angeles] was where I needed to go. There were a lot of reasons to stay in Israel and stay with my family and continue working, but there’s always that question in the back of your mind: Am I doing everything I can? Will I look back 40 years from now and say, ‘I wish…’? I didn’t want to have that question, so I packed my things.
